Table 3 Counts of transcripts arising from the expected transcription start site for S glycoprotein transcripts and their assignment

From: SARS-CoV-2 vaccine ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 infection of human cell lines reveals low levels of viral backbone gene transcription alongside very high levels of SARS-CoV-2 S glycoprotein gene transcription

Cell line Number of transcripts starting at TSS for S glycoprotein Number of transcripts that code for S glycoprotein (percentage) Number of transcripts belonging to the dominant transcript class (percentage)
MRC-5 20,471 19,187 (93.7%) 9746 (47.6%)
A549 4886 4607 (94.3%) 2422 (49.6%)
293 11,094 10,586 (95.4%) 6050 (54.5%)
  1. This table details numbers of transcripts which map to the expected transcription start site for the major S glycoprotein transcript at 1700 nt. For each cell line, the counts are the accumulated numbers of transcripts at all the time points examined and the numbers (and percentage) of transcripts that should code for the S glycoprotein as the 5′ most ORF
